Cookies and Cupcakes.

I don't know what has gotten into me lately but I've caught the baking bug. I figured why not, how hard can baking be? I just have to be patient, follow a recipe and as my sister says," Have fun, baking is fun!" I have to be honest, I've been having fun! I get all the necessary ingredients out, turn on either Sara Bareilles or Michael Bublé on Pandora, pour myself a glass of wine and I get cooking, while sending my guy Kyle picture updates of my progress and to let him know that I didn't burn Dow. The kitchen.

Yesterday, after perusing Pinterest and looking at the rainy weather outside I thought it was the perfect day for some baking fun and the recipe I found knocked my socks off and made my belly rumble. The challenge would be Oreo Crunch Cupcakes that I found of Pinterest via A Little Inspiration Blog .(Such a cute blog by the way!) Where you can find the simple recipe.

The recipe didn't seem too difficult and to give it a Jeans and Tees and Travel and Cakes twist I used Mint and Blonde Oreos instead of Classic Black and White. The result was amazing and with 24 delicious cupcakes staring me in the face while I was all by myself in my apartment, I knew I had a problem on my hands. If I kept all of these cupcakes in my apartment I would indeed eat all of them, so I divided them up and dropped them off to various family members to make their rainy day a little better.

Here is how my Oreo Crunch Cupcakes turned out.
